"Move the meter to somewhere more convenient"

Several years ago I paid British Gas to move the gas meter from inside the garage to a box on the outside wall. That worked well for many years.

Then I had a phone call from said company taking me to task for not submitting manual readings. Apparently they had changed their meter reading to the legal minimum of once every two years. I pointed out that if they had sent a periodic automated phone call or email like the electricity supplier then I would have obliged. I think they now send such a phone call about once a year.
